Dear Academic Approach Families and Colleagues:
Yesterday, we shared the most current SAT updates, and today we focus on the ACT. It’s a rapid time of innovation, so we’ll likely have more updates soon, but these are the most relevant and current in terms of ACT testing and timeline:
Summer Testing Options
The June and July ACT are still proceeding as scheduled at this point. ACT is offering makeup testing dates for the June and July tests—should test centers be unable to open on June 13 or July 18, a makeup test date will be offered a week later on June 20 and July 25, respectively. Students can also switch for free from the June to the July date, if they prefer.
ACT also offers on-campus testing at colleges, and they are emphasizing that this option will continue to be available to students this fall. This allows an individual college or university to administer and ACT test on campus. The score is reportable, but only to that specific college.
In-Home Remote Proctoring
ACT plans to roll out this new option to take the ACT at home in late fall/early winter 2020. They’ve released little information about this option so far, but we expect to see more in the next few weeks.
New Testing Options
As previously announced, ACT is still planning to offer individual section retesting, online testing at national test sites, and superscoring for students who retake the exam starting in September 2020.
Please reach out if we can help you in any way.
